We were so excited when Genevieve got in touch to say that she was planning to take advantage of the Leap Year tradition, to propose to her boyfriend, Rachad.

She surprised him with a trip to Scotland, where she popped the question on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, with the help of a choir and brass band. As an astonished Rachad looked on, the singers and musicians were joined by Genevieve to reveal the big question, ‘Will you marry me?’.

The couple are based in the United Arab Emirates and plan to marry in Genevieve’s native South Africa. We are sure you will join us in wishing them a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness.

To complete the story, all you need is to be asked to photograph the wedding. That would be sensational!
